The last Frangipani


Sunshine Coast Daily Photo - Australia

The Plumeria or Frangipani as it is known is a native of southern India, Venezuela and Mexico, but it has spread through most temperate climates and has become somewhat synonymous with Coastal areas, including our own.

Autumn is apon us, and the leaves of the frangipani are already starting to thin, but here is one last shock of flower in our garden. The white ones and red ones have long gone.

Golly, Virginia doesn't know the frangipani! I would have thought it would have blossomed under the weather conditions of the South of the States. There are still some white ones on the bush two doors up from me, but the leaves are rapidly ageing.
